The social events of NSM2006 are a bus trip to Lucca (an attractive mediaeval town near Pisa) and the conference dinner.

The bus trip to Lucca is scheduled on Sunday, May 28th. The cost is 20 Euro + (optional) 20 Euro for lunch at "Trattoria da Leo" (typical local food will be served, here is the menu, a vegeterian menu is also available).

The program of the social trip is the following. At 9:00 a bus will be waiting for participants in front of the Math. Department, and will leave at 9:30am. In the morning, there will be a guided tour of Lucca with an authorized (English speaking) guide. Then participants will be left free to enjoy Lucca. The bus will drive back to Pisa at (approx.) 4:30pm.

The conference dinner of NSM2006 will be on Monday, May 29, at Restaurant "La Scaletta", located in via Pietrasantina 107. The cost is 30 Euro. [Please notice that the conference dinner is not included in the conference fee.]

Restaurant "La Scaletta" is located at walking distance from the leaning tower (10 minutes) and from the conference site (25 minutes). The menu consists of typical local cuisine of the Pisa area. Here is the menu (a vegeterian menu is also available).

The bus trip to Lucca is limited to 45 participants, and the social dinner at Restaurant "La Scaletta" is limited to 50 participants. If you want to participate to one or both these social events, you need to buy your tickets directly at the Conference desk while registering.
